Thomas Truax

WEDNESDAY 18TH OCTOBER 2017

Doors 7:30pm

Over 18s

Merging a fevered imagination, solid songwriting abilities and a groovy showbiz attitude with a mad scientist's brain for weird gadgets, Thomas Truax is a true one-off. He travels the world delighting audiences with his evolving "band" of surreal self-made Harry Partch-esque instruments including a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called 'Mother Superior' and a souped up Dr. Seuss-ian Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as guitar.

UNCUT magazine says "Truax is shaping up nicely as one of the great rock eccentrics" while Splendid magazine called him "one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you've never heard of...an exceptional talent, unique and resistant to comparison."
He crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with things lunar, including various reasons 'Why Dogs Howl at The Moon'. His eight studio LPs include highly-rated covers album 'Songs From The Films Of David Lynch'. Notable supporters and collaborators include Jarvis Cocker, Duke Special, Richard Hawley, The Dresden Dolls, and the late author Terry Pratchett.

A new single ‘Save Me’ featuring Gemma Ray is scheduled for release in September, and a new full-length album 'All That Heaven Allows' will follow soon after. A collaboration with Leeds band Post War Glamour Girls
is also set to be released this autumn.

"Enthralling, mind-blowingly original and totally bonkers... a creative circus of the wonderfully surreal." - Brighton Noise

"When he performs, it is a spectacle - the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal." -The Guardian

"His gigs are extraordinary, fizzing with showmanship." -Q
